Hello Celebration Family!
As many of you know, we have resumed in-person worship services! Here are some details that you may want to know before attending services on-site.
We will be having two services: 9am and 11am with doors opening 15 minutes before each service begins. This will allow us, as staff and volunteers, to ensure the rooms are fully cleaned, and we are ready to receive you. Both services will also be streamed live online.
Our services will be family-style, meaning adults and kids are both welcome to worship together in the Sanctuary. We won’t be having in-person childcare or kids ministry yet; however, we will have our Nursing Mother’s room and a parent-supervised Wiggle Giggle room available for families as needed.
For school-aged kids, Pastor Mary will be uploading her Celebration Kids Service at 7am on Sunday. We invite families to bring headphones and a device for their child(ren) to watch Pastor Mary’s message after corporate worship is complete and Pastor Derrick begins to preach.
Lastly, we have worked very hard to ensure we are fully prepared to join together in worship. To help us facilitate service and to keep you informed of what to expect when you arrive, we have included the below links to review before joining us on Sunday:
1. Health & Exposure Survey (English) (Spanish) (coming soon: French): This Survey is for self-assessment purposes only, and Celebration does not collect any of this information. The Survey contains questions for staff, volunteers and congregants to self-assess whether they should attend in-person services or to worship with us at home. We will continue to live stream both our services so that you can remain connected to the Celebration family.
2. Preparedness Plan (English) (Spanish)(coming soon: French): The Minnesota DEED has given guidance on special precautions that churches should take before opening. The linked Preparedness Plan lists Celebration’s safety policies and procedures to properly meet this guidance. This Plan is available to all staff, volunteers and congregants both online via the link above and on-site in Celebration Church’s main lobby, in the staff office, and the chapel hallway.
3. Summary Plan (English) (Spanish) (coming soon: French): As the Preparedness Plan is long, we have also created a more concise Summary Plan for easier review of what to expect when attending in-person services. If you have any questions about the Preparedness Plan or what to expect, please contact our Plan Administrator by replying to this email or by the below contact info:
4. Additionally, we are working towards opening up Kid's Ministry (6 months through 6th grade), as well as rebuilding our volunteer teams! If you would like to bring your kids to Kid's Ministry and/or would like to volunteer in any of our Serve Teams, please fill out the surveys below!
Once again, we are excited to add in-person gatherings to our online ministry and we can’t wait to worship with you!
